From critically acclaimed, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author C. J. Lyons comes Broken, a young adult mystery/suspense novel ripped directly from the author’s experience practicing pediatrics.
If you want to get noticed fast, try starting high school three weeks and three days late as the girl who almost died. The only thing fifteen-year-old Scarlet Killian wants is to be a normal teenage girl. Suffering from chronic health problems, she’s been home schooled or stuck in a hospital most of her life, but Scarlet has convinced her parents to give her three days to prove to them that she’s capable of surviving high school. Her only companions are an imaginary friend she’s had since childhood and her portable defibrillator, Phil. That is, until she meets the others assigned to her Peer Mentor Support group and for the first time in her life makes real friends. It’s only with the help of her new friends that Scarlet is able to face down bullies,endure her school-nurse mother’s smothering over protectiveness, and eventually discover the truth behind her illness—a truth that puts much more than her life at risk.
